    I think if you wonder if you are loved, then there might be a problem. Just a thought.,,,,Mulan you maybe on to something

    The things I look for in a woman that indicates genuine love are the way she looks at me, the way she talks to me, the kind deeds, thoughtfulness and whether or not she includes me in her plans/planning. The truly defining element that indicates love is whether or not a person would be willing to sacrifice their own interests for the betterment of the other. The ultimate sacrifice being their life i.e. would they be willing to shove you out of the way of danger whilst putting themselves in danger. This I find is consistent in all relationships. For example, I would risk my life to save my kids without hesitation but I think this applies to a husband-wife (partner-partner) relationship as well.

    I've been in many relationships but I don't know the answer to your question. It's something I never experienced.

    I really cannot see how a JW can love anyone because they have to much love for themselves.

    thats a blanket statement. i dont believe that.. simply because i've seen what my parents have done for 40 yrs and the love they've shown for so many witness and worldy people.. of course they are old school jw's not todays tightass better than thou type. i know there are loving people within the congregations. but once you get up to elders and higher ups i think your statement may be more likely to be the case!

    (my dad rarely goes anymore because of age and because a few years ago an elder told him he wanted him to attend more as a seat filler... isnt that a loving thing to say to an elderly man who went to prison for YEARS for this religion?)

    When that ice cold spot in your chest is gone

    When there is someone to hold after a bad dream

    When the walls come down and someone is there just to listen

    When you are alone, but not lonely

    When just hearing their voice on the phone sends a thrill of excitement down your spine

    When just being around them feels as comfortable as an old pair of jeans

    When they know your deepest secrets and still care
